4th Annual Austin Duck Derby
Saturday, August 5, 2017

Family-friendly activities including face painting, music, food and more will take place on the Austin American Statesman’s parking lot during the duck race.

Ducks will be available for adoption for $5.00 each at beginning in May 2017. For sponsorship opportunities, contact or 512-444-7199.

Celebrate the outstanding achievements of Club members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area (BGCAA) as we announce our:

Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area
premier recognition program for Club members

Each year, two exceptional Club members are selected to represent BGCAA -- one as Youth of the Year (high school) and one as Junior Youth of the Year (middle school). The winners will be announced for the first time at our luncheon. Youth of the Year serves as both an exemplary ambassador for Boys & Girls Club youth and as a strong voice for all of Austin's young people.

To achieve the title of Youth of the Year, Club members must embody the values of leadership and service; academic excellence; and healthy lifestyles. They exemplify the critical impact that Boys & Girls Clubs have on the lives of young people.

Join us on Dec. 2 to hear the incredible stories of our youth and be inspired. Invite your friends and colleagues to this important event.
